Review Summary: Hell depicted as it truly is, pure agony.

From the first few seconds of the track “Hail,” the crushing and painful experience of Satan Worshipping Doom is revealed in all its cacophonous glory. The abstract horrors created by the sludgy anguish are akin to an undying realm that is bathed in agony and suffering. In this respect, the sonic dissonance is tortuous and arduous in terms of world building. When it comes to the perception of the actual music, the monolithic and grotesque grooves compel the listener into a mesmerizing state. The brutal atmosphere created is unsettling, of course, but also murky and mysterious enough to hold retainment with a tight grasp.

With this, the frighteningly obtuse depiction of Hell that graces this record is perfectly fitting. The disturbing blend of doom metal’s drones, black metal’s mercilessness, sludge metal’s slow catharsis, and demon-spawned pugnacity slowly cascades over the mind until the seeds of horror are sown in one’s grey matter. The repetitive nature of these songs and the lack of any vocals only lends to the nature of being lost in the grim, dark aura. The simplistic approach to crushing riffs complements the goal of the record in countless ways. It forces the listener to stare straight on at the horror’s of Satan’s creation.

And, with this, Bongripper does more than invoke Satanic imagery. The scope of their creation is bountifully large, crafted with painstaking detail of the most sinister caliber. The all encompassing zone is richly populated with the demonic beasts and whores, who constantly taunt the victims of Hell’s wrath and apathetic sadism. The art knows this place is mortifying in the most unholy of ways, but it revels in it. Lucifer laughs as the damned and the forsaken scream. The pain is never ending for these wretched souls...

...God can’t hear them scream.

They're instrumental for one and I guess a lil doomier and less psychedelic (especially compared to newer EW)
